Hello fellow data scientists!

 

As a part of my research project, I wrote a brief user's manual on THELI, detailing how to use and what each module does, with some added explanations / recommendations for inexperienced data scientists (like I was not too long ago).

 

Note that this is not intended to replace the documentation in any way. In fact, most of the information in the write up can be found in one form or another in the documentation; our goal was to simply reinterpret the information in a more digestible way for those using THELI (or reducing data) for the first time. We hope that, for those folks, this write up is a bit more readable than the professional documentation might be.

 

If any improvements can be made, feel free to email the address that is at the end of the document. I am happy to answer questions, make improvements, or make corrections.

 

Cheers, and best of luck!

I'm not familiar with THELI.  Can you tell us a little more about what can be used for?

Nice !
I've used Theli years ago (the Theli forum did not yet exist ;-) )
Too bad that it still uses QT3, that's a real hindrance now (and I don't want to use a VM).

I liked the photometric color calibration capability, and the pipeline idea in general.

Glad to see Theli gets more attention. I should really revisit it.

Thanks for writing this document on Theli.
